Gig Guide - Friday the 10th of August, 2012


Personally I am monumentally aggrieved that I cannot make it to Kampot this weekend. It's going to be a totally enjoyable weekend with three great gigs and a wonderful selection of quality bands. It will start tonight (Friday) at the totally cruisey and laid -back but also rockin' venue - the Bodhi Villa. Located right on the Kampot river, the gig will include the much-talked about and new band The Pistolinos together with the full-on show of the phsycho-mango trio of Up 2U Mango. You can spend Saturday recovering by the river and sipping on fresh mango and banana smoothies in order to get yourself ready for the gig at the Greenhouse that night - featuring Up 2U Mango again together with the eclectic fusion of the Kampot Playboys (see the video below). Sunday afternoon you can return to the Greenhouse for an afternoon jam with a special selection of local and extralocal quality musicians. Altogether, it should be a great weekend and I totally urge you to get there for it.

If you can't get there for the weekend then there are still plenty of great gigs for you. In Siem Reap on Friday the brilliant horns of Rhythm Conspiracy will be playing at Molly Malones. The band is celebrating 50 years since the release of the first James Bond movie and as such will be playing songs from the soundtrack of Dr. No. Check out this great live MP3 track that Tommy Nick from the band sent. Some very cool solos in there.

In Phnom Penh on Friday make your choice from the brand new 2 Shots and a Chaser at Paddy Rice, the great sound of Holliday in Cambodia at Sharkys or the James Brown cover band from Thailand known as Supabad at the FCC. Cool!

On Saturday in Phnom Penh Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers return with their Chicago Blues to Equinox. Look for special guest Gustav Hastings who will get up and play with the band this week. In Siem Reap the ever-popular Cambojam will play at the X-Bar.

There is plenty coming up all around the country from Sihanoukville to Kep to Kampot to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. A great vibrant scene that just keeps growing. Smokin'ly cool! Also look later this year for a possible special debut live performance from the elusive Krom. More details when they come to hand.

I will leave you this week with a taste of the live music that you will experience in Kampot this weekend. It is a video sent by Justin from the Kampot Playboys and is a great live performance from the band of a Khmer version of Gloria - check it out.

Also check out this great 35+ minute mix track sent by DJ Illest. Totally cool.

From Ted and I here in the back streets of Phnom Penh, have a great weekend, be cool with each other and see you around the traps. Here's this week's gig guide.
